A female ‘pehelwaan’, in a village full of male body builder bouncers, becomes a bouncer herself. Actor Tamannaah Bhatia’s latest film Babli Bouncer follows the journey of the titular character as she navigates all  the curveballs life throws at her, at her own terms.

Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, Babli Bouncer is billed as a “delightful fun family entertainer” which features Tamannaah as a lady bouncer. The film also stars Saurabh Shukla, Abhishek Bajaj and Sahil Vaid in pivotal roles.

The makers dropped the film’s two-minute plus trailer on Monday, which places Tamannaah’s Babli in Fatehpur Beri, which, as Saurabh Shukla’s voiceover puts it, is ‘village of bouncers.’

Babli defies gender norms — she can’t make perfectly round chapatis,but lifts the heaviest of weights in the gym with ease — and eventually has her life transformed when she lands a job: that of a lady bouncer in a club.
